One Spotted Wood Owl (𝘚𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘹 𝘴𝘦𝘭𝘰𝘱𝘶𝘵𝘰) was turned over by a concerned citizen from Barangay Mandaragat, Puerto Princesa City to the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development Staff (PCSDS) on September 20, 2021.
The concerned citizen, who did not wish to be identified, stated that the Spotted Wood Owl was found by his assistant on his farm in Bahile, Puerto Princesa City, while it was trapped in a chicken net on September 14, 2021.
He revealed that they put the captured owl in a cage and cared for it but still noticed that the bird appeared weak and dehydrated. Fearing that its condition would worsen or it would die, he decided to turn it over to the PCSDS where it can be properly cared for and protected.
The Spotted Wood Owl was brought to the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center (PWRCC) on September 20, 2021, for its rehabilitation.
The Spotted Wood Owl is listed as “Endangered Species” under the PCSD Resolution 15-521.
